La Mirada gets sweet revenge

first_imgNorco, which held a 9-6 advantage in shots, finished 13-3-2. “We really wanted to win this game,” Cope said. “We wanted to prove to (Norco) that we could go to the quarterfinals.” La Mirada showed it from the start. The Matadores controlled the ball early before getting a solid scoring chance in the 11th minute. The opportunity came after a foul was called on Norco just outside the penalty area. Senior captain Sha Wheeler then fired a hard shot on the free kick. The ball first glanced off Norco goalie Shawnda Fredrickson before ricochetting off the cross bar to a wide-open Cope. The senior easily put it to the right of Fredrickson for a 1-0 advantage. LA MIRADA – Revenge proved to be sweet for the La Mirada High School girls soccer team Tuesday. Senior midfielder Lauren Cope scored in the 11th minute and the Matadores survived several scoring opportunities by visiting Norco in the second half to score a 1-0 victory in a CIF-Southern Section Division III second-round game. La Mirada (17-9-2), which had lost to Norco earlier this season, earned a quarterfinal road game against either Garden Grove Pacifica or Chadwick on Thursday. It will be the Matadores’ second consecutive trip to the quarterfinals and their third in the past five years. center_img “It hit the cross bar, I think,” Cope said. “I really can’t remember. I was just in the moment and I hit it with by leg and it went in. “You have to be ready and put it in. And that’s what I did.” The early score fit into the game plan of the Matadores and coach Dennis Guerra. “My defense, I have one sophomore and four seniors,” Guerra said. “So, we’re solid at defense. “We want the lead. If we get the early lead, we’re able to control (the ball) and play it.” Norco, the No. 1 team from the Mountain View League, didn’t actually quit trying, however. The Cougars peppered the attacking zone for much of the second half only to be denied at every turn. Norco’s best chance came in the 52nd minute. Forward Megan Lopez dribbled down the side of the penalty area and directed a crossing pass to midfielder Amanda Koman. But La Mirada’s Julie Reich deflected the attempt, which was grabbed by keeper Kiki Salazar to preserve the 1-0 lead. Salazar had three saves. The Cougars also had solid chances in the 68th and 75th minutes. On the first attempt, Caitlin Villareal got loose down the side before sending the ball to Courtney Inglis, who was about 10 yards out and took a shot that went wide. Audrey Ameduri had a chance down the side in the 75th minute, but La Mirada’s Tatiana Cortez recovered to deflect the ball for a corner kick. Nichole Smith’s crossing pass first was cleared by Wheeler, but the ball went right to Julie Falksen at the top of the penalty area. Her shot was straight on but high. “They are an offensive team, and they were pressuring us. But we held on,” Guerra said. “I told the girls, `Just don’t give them anything open, pressure them, and make them make the great play and allow your keeper a chance to make a great save.’ ” steve.ramirez@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3061 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
